Vogue definitely made their own chassis or at least they took air ride chassis from some other source and built their motorhome on it. I've toured the Pryor, OK facility back when they were still in business. Towards the end, they bought Prevost shells and put Vogue conversions in them. Both were built for a period of time in the Pryor, OK facility.

The Vogues definitely are not busses. With the exception of the ones that were in Prevost shells. Not taking anything away from the Vouge coaches; they were very nice but they were not busses. After they started buying Prevost and converting them, Vantare came in to the mix and then Featherlite bought Vogue.

Featherlite leased the Vogue facility in Pryor, and now that Featherlit has moved on, I"m not sure who is on the hook financially for that facilty. My uncle manages the industrial park that the plant is located in, so I could get the latest facts from him.

Len,

You beat me to it.  I have been seeing that Vogue on the Prevost shell for about six months.  That bus has some of the prettiest wood in it that i have ever laid eyes on.  I think it is from Hawaii.  Drool pretty.

I did read awhile ago that the vogue was built on one of those supreme Crown chassis with all the bells and whistles for stout and function.  Crown would definitely not be an insult in any way for what little I know.  Your engine isn't in the middle now is it? Wink

No, the engine is not in the middle!

Actually, I have no proof that my chassis was built by Crown, only what I have heard on Vogue web sites.  There is nothing in the docs or labels on the coach.  I can tell you that is one very substantial air ride chassis.  I have looked under more than a few motor homes and this thing is massive.
